Later this spring, we’re moving into our FIRST HOUSE! Seriously, someone needs to pinch me. We’d always talked about moving someday and it’s kind of crazy to think that that someday is already here. Not only that, but we’re moving into something that has always been a dream for us – an old farmhouse out in the country.
You had better believe I’m ordering this Katie Daisy print soon!
So I guess I should back up this story a little bit. After my health scare at the beginning of the year, Garrett and I started talking more about what we wanted in this life together and appreciating the time that we have. Moving into our own home was up at the top of the list. It all started two weeks ago when I began looking at what was on the market. We’d talked about maybe buying a house later in the spring or summer, and it made sense to get a feel for what was out there before we got serious. We looked at two houses in town and on a whim I asked our agent to take us out to this old farmhouse that was listed too. The outside looked pretty rundown and needed some work, but it was a big house on a nice piece of land that was worth checking out. We walked in and it was love at first sight for both of us. After carefully going over all the pros and cons, and a thorough inspection we decided to move forward. Like any house over one hundred years old, it needs some serious work, but we’re both excited to take on the challenge of returning this beauty to her former glory.
